Why Convergence?  Why Now?

Why Convergence? Why Now?

This white paper, authored by ESG, delves into nature of converged storage, what it is, the implicit value it provides and, how, ultimately, it represents a new integrated approach to IT infrastructure overall, and to storage in particular.

Download Why Convergence? Why Now? to learn more about what converged storage can achieve for your organization and about HP's vision for a pooled and shared storage resource that delivers ease, flexibility, and cost-efficiency all in one.

Convergence cannot happen in a vacuum and must be both cognizant of and peacefully co-exist with other significant drivers in IT - both the IT and business initiatives must be addressed. For storage, these drivers are: Operational challenges (agility) and business requirements (efficiency). With big data needs and use of the cloud growing, converged storage provides for a broad, deep, and highly capable storage foundation that allows seamless data access and use, along with improved value and reduced risk. It also can be viewed as the logical answer to an integrated approach to IT. Moreover, converged infrastructure is not about vendor lock-in; it is about a new approach to addressing a new set of conditions and needs. There is nothing unseemly about saving money and that is something that a converged approach to IT, infrastructure, and storage can inherently deliver.
